Did you get a babysitter for ever single band event (games/practices/contests etc.)?
Or did you take your baby to some stuff, not others?
At what age were you taking them? How did they travel? Your personal vehicle?
My wife and I work together and have a baby who is just over a year old.
This year, because she was so young, and worries of COVID, we basically just had to get a babysitter for every single band thing.
At the beginning of this coming school year, our baby will be about 1 and a half.
Is it reasonable for us to plan on taking her to football games?
It was very difficult for us to be gone from her for so long on Fridays. She's very good on trips. We travel with band parents, and I know some of them wouldn't mind helping out when we need to work more actively.
How would you feel as a head director if 2 of your assistants had this request? (Note- we're not the only assistants)
What do you think?
